‘Clearing space’ and ‘starting fresh’ are spring time rituals that almost all of us follow. There is nothing better than purging an overstuffed closet, and making room for fabulous new clothes of course! Maribel on Lakeshore Ave. makes these rites of spring a snap. Fashion Forward went in recently to consign some items taking up space in the closet, and the process was quite enjoyable. There was no wait, and Anne, the owner explained how they consign, and it was done! Just like that. Maribel only takes designer/brand name clothes in good condition that are generally (unless it is a great piece) from recent seasons/collections. And, if it is your first time consigning you get 10% off your next purchase! Which is great because in store they had super cute Diane Von Furstenburg denim shorts, LA made tops, and an awesome Stewart and Brown cardi!
Past finds at Maribel include: Marc Jacobs skirts and tops and a fantastic Jill Stuart tea dress.
So go ahead, purge those clothes you don’t wear and pick up something new for spring.
